A building society is holding a huge cash giveaway, allowing Maldon residents to nominate causes close to their hearts to receive a share of £150,000.

The Yorkshire Building Society’s annual Make a Difference Week means members of the public can nominate charities until Saturday.

To put forward a favourite charity, residents and shoppers simply need to go to the Society’s Maldon agency, 83 Maldon High Street, where they will be instructed on the nomination process.

Any of the named charities could receive the £100 donation from the building society’s Charitable Foundation.

The Society is donating £150,000 country-wide, £1,000 for every year since the building society began.
